I marched in a couple of parades since my last post! Some catching up to do here, yes. One was the Marche du Nain Rouge, a fun re-started tradition in the city of Detroit. Here I am in the marche (it is French, non?) --

And in the summer was the Motor City Pride festival, which in a major turn of events, moved back to downtown Detroit this year. It was a huge success! Read more about it here. Anyway, I got to march in the "Robert M. Nelson Presents: A Salute to Robert M. Nelson" parade! And I was in a picture in the Detroit News --

Robert M. Nelson is best described as a Detroit Personality. He may be "not pictured", but he does appear in the excellent Motor City Pride video (at 3:47).

Viva Drag

I've been away from blogging for some time... I've been busy with a new hobby, doing drag performing! I'm just now taking some time off from it (on top of the regular job that I have), so I'll blog a bit now.

The picture above is me performing at a local club Stiletto's a few months ago, dancing and lip syncing to a pop song, Katy Perry "Hot N Cold" in this case. I do a lot of Lady Gaga, and also Lily Allen, No Doubt, and sometimes mix it up with some older stuff such as the B-52s, the Runaways, Breeders, etc. I try not to do just the top hits, anyway. I'm at Stiletto's most Thursday nights if you want to come see me!

"Hobby" is probably not the best word for something that feels like it was taking over my life for a while, but I'll call it that. I have a "drag mother" and everything that goes with that.

So I'm learning a lot about performing which has been great. And I'm getting a ton of makeup practice... drag makeup seems to be its own thing beyond regular crossdressing makeup. I'll post more pictures of me with my new looks soon.
